Puppy Pre-School Classes

Puppy Preschool Graduation 3

Being a puppy is one of the most important stages of a dogs life. It is during this period that a young puppy will learn the most. 
Puppy Preschool classes are especially designed for puppies 8 to 14 weeks of age to help them to become social and well adjusted family members. It will also inform you, as an owner, on all the important aspects of owning a dog. 
Puppies will learn how to play appropriately with other dogs, and you will learn about general health care, plus we cover some basic training techniques. Most importantly we give you some handy hints to tackle those troublesome puppy behaviours and give you and your family the tools to teach the puppy appropriate manners. 
Courses run for 4 weeks on a Thursday night, with a start time of 6:30pm. Bookings are essential cost is $80 for the 4 week course. 
Numbers are limited to ensure all attending puppies and their families get the most appropriate attention and are not overwhelmed. A single puppy vaccination is the only prerequisite.

Feliway

For some of our patients a trip to the vets can be stressful and this is turn can make the whole exercise difficult for owners too. We are always striving to minimise pet (and owner) stress levels at our clinic. We are excited to announce we are partnering with Ceva Animal Health to use Feliway® and Adaptil® continuously in our clinic to reduce pet stress and make visits as comfortable as possible. Dogs and cats naturally use pheromones as a method of communication. Feliway® and Adaptil® are synthetic pheromones that mimic a pet’s own pheromones they naturally release when feeling safe and calm.
